The Moroccan Elixir

This olive oil takes its name from the famous ancient Roman town near Meknes: Volubilis.

Youssef Gardam, raised in France, decided after his studies to return to Morocco to produce an excellent olive oil from the orchards planted by his great-grandfather. He favours an early harvest, the olives are picked by hand one by one to give birth to a sweet, tender and fragrant oil. This mill located between the Atlas and the Atlantic Ocean, has the particularity of producing an olive oil with a very low acidity rate, 0.13% at bottling. Youssef Gardam has been able to develop production techniques that allow him to create the first Moroccan olive oil "Grand Cru" which has nothing to blush in front of an Italian or a French one.
